SCREAM FOR DEAN
UPSIDE DOWN DEFINITIONS

Conservatives on spending sprees
of favors for the rich
sweetheart deals
tasty contracts for the well connected
Drug companies drink
an elixir of benefits
FDA approved
Healthy Forests
a loggers delight
Clear Skies
give polluters free reign
Compassion drops programs
to the old, weak and poor
yet lavishes credits to the wealthy
“It’s their money
They’ve earned it”
it is argued
I stand on my head
to comprehend
The religious right
thinks they have found
a way to lead
a camel
through the needle’s eye
while the media applauds
I sit, watch, read
suspended in a truth vacuum
I try to suck in air
get out my dictionary
to see if “Liar”
has been stricken from
its pages too
